Ocqueoc Falls, Bicentennial Pathway Professional Review and Guide

"The Ocqueoc Falls Bicentennial Pathway offers three loops through terrain bordering one of northeast Michigan’s premier steelhead and salmon streams. The shortest of the three loops is 3 miles and caters to the casual hiker with only moderate changes in elevation. The 5-mile and 6-mile loops share the same route, but extend farther along the Ocqueoc River through some very sandy and hilly terrain. An added difficulty is the remoteness of the outer legs of the first two loops and the entire third loop north of the Little Ocqueoc River.

The Ocqueoc River falls, created by a series of limestone escarpments, are the largest falls in the Lower Peninsula. The mix of highland hardwoods and pines here blend with cedar bogs and swamps along the trail to create a tapestry of color, particularly in fall. Wildlife abounds along the trail, including deer, wild turkey, small game, and a variety of waterfowl."

It was a good trail. However, it had its problems. The tree covering was limited in areas of the thrid loop. The fall are also at the very beginning or at the very end. This makes it hard becuase you are ready to be done if you what until the end, and you've wasted the suprize if you see it at the beginning. It is a good trail for a family, and couples. The falls are great! There is alot of people around the falls, but if you don't mind people then it is a great view. The map of the trail is a little diffrent then on trail.com, but if you referto the trail head map it is easy to figure out the differences.

Ever-present lowlands supply squadrons of mosquitoes and black flies, so the trails are best avoided in late spring and early summer. July and August are ideal for family hikes. Fishermen and hunters are here in the fall.
